Transform your IT organisation to drive business value creation
The world today has never been more connected, a world whereby it’s citizens interact with each other predominantly through their mobile devices. Access of information on a mobile device is no longer a bonus function, but a necessity, and it’s past due that businesses move together with its customers.
Companies now are beginning to shift toward a 2 speed architecture, where front-end functions like sales and marketing get real time data updates on a user-friendly dashboard that works on mobile but at the same time, maintains the stability and cost efficiency of the back-end office. A 2 speed enterprise is one that is agile, responsive and profitable. However, driving change at an organisation wide level, involves a complex web of stakeholders and existing infrastructure, posing it’s fair share of challenges. How would one navigate the challenges of transition and define clear performance indicators on a realistic roadmap?
An insightful cross-functional panel discussion, where Candice Poh (CIO, Consumer SG & IG, Singtel) will share about her current experience leading Singtel through toward a sustainable 2 speed enterprise. Acclaimed CEO and CFO, Lynette Seah will also share her experience prioritising enterprise level goals, providing insight into the mind of a CEO and how the CIO should be positioned beyond the traditional business support role, but to take the role of being a key driver in business innovation.
